Our island clothes are designed to be worn by women of all shapes, sizes and ages. The fit of our clothing is generous, and we manufacture in sizes XS through to XXL and then also in Plus Sizes. 1XL, 2XL, 3XL and 4XL
Pure cotton plus size clothing can be difficult to find. Plus Size Beach Vacation Clothes can be even more difficult to find, but we do a small selection of plus size beach wear to ensure we have island wear to cater to everyone.

How does the size guide work?
How do our garments fit?
On our size guide there are 2 columns, one is body measurements and one is garment measurements. What that means is that the body measurements are your actual body measurements. It doesn't matter if it is inches or centimetres as our size guide is set up for both.
Get a tape measurement and put it around your bust/chest. It must go around the widest part - no cheating. Get the measurement and compare that to the size guide. Do the same thing for the hips.... put it around the widest part of your hips / bottom.
The garment measurements on the size guide are based on a tunic. A tunic is made of a light fabric that is NOT stretchy.... so we have added on about 9-10 cms movement into the garment so that you can move inside a non-stretchy garment. If the tunic was made to the same measurements as the body measurements it would be really tight and you would not be able to move inside the garment. A lot of our dresses are made of knit fabric that stretches, so you don't need as much space inside a dress to move. And if the dress is a tank top style of dress (with no sleeves) then you don't want the armhole gaping open so that everyone can see your bra.... so it is made smaller than a tunic top would be around the armhole.
So take your measurements of your body, have a look at which size you would be using these measurements and if you are ordering a dress not a tunic, still order that same size and I have adjusted the garments to suit this sizing.
